Power indicator is flashing after volume spiked and unit shut off
While playing a music CD I used our DirecTV remote to then up the volume. It seemed like the volume spiked until the unit turned itself off. Then the power indicator began to flash. I checked the owners manual (page 63) and reinitialized the microprocessor. After that, the amp would come back on only if the volume is turned completely off. Even turning it even one small db (-70) makes it shut off. Ventilation is not an issue.
I ran a channel level check and got a very LOUD static and the volume was not controllable.

If you have small satellite type speakers the 100 & 120 Hz option
on the Onkyo will be useful. On the other hand, if you have large
speakers and want to make the best of them the receiver should have
crossover frequency selection at frequencies LESS than 80 Hz, like
Even if you have large speakers you should select small on the
receiver to filter out the lowest frequencies. You will get much better
performance from the sub by sending it only the lowest frequencies
(< 40-50 Hz).
As far as I know some models by Onkyo, Denon 3803 and up and
Pioneer Elite models have option of selecting lower than 80 Hz
crossover frequency. I think this is vital for optimum integration of
Ideally subwoofers should have by-passable crossovers. Internal
crossovers should not be used when the bass management is done
correctly by the receiver (not by any Yamaha model!). The internal
crossover should be used only for two channel applications when there
is no bass management circuitry provided by the preamp/amp/receiver.

Press and hold the MUTE button. This is located above the number 1 button.
While still holding down MUTE, press and hold the SELECT button until the green light at the top of the remote flashes twice.
Enter the first TV code you have. The green light on remote should flash twice.
Aim remote at TV and press PWR button once. The TV should power off.
Once the TV is able to power off/on and control the volume, slide the mode switch at the top of the remote back to the left (DIRECTV). Your remote is now programmed.
If the TV does not power off, repeat steps 4, 5, 6 and 7, using the next code for your TV brand.
If remote control fails to program using all available codes, try scanning for the code.
How to scan for TV codes on your DIRECTV remote
Make sure your TV is turned on.
Slide the mode switch at top of remote to "TV".
Press and hold the MUTE button. This is located above the number 1 button.
While still holding down MUTE, press and hold the SELECT button until green light at the top of the remote flashes twice.
Then enter 991, the green light on remote should flash twice.
Point remote at TV and press CHANNEL UP button. Tap the CHANNEL UP button repeatedly until the TV powers off.
When the TV powers off, press and release the SELECT button.
Note: If the green light flashes three times before TV responds, then all codes have been cycled through. Our remote controls are guaranteed to program to your DIRECTV receiver, however your TV may not be compatible with our remote control.
My remote worked perfectly until I changed the battery. The original battery was CL 2032 and I replaced it with DL 2032. After replacing the battery, only the volume control works. The off button will only fade the sound while the button is depressed. Release the button, and the volume returns to the original level and the unit remains On.
None of the other buttons work.

Programming DIRECTV Remote
1. Locate the DIRECTV Receiver's brand and model number
(on the back or bottom panel) and write it in the
2. Locate the 5-digit code for your DIRECTV Receiver (see
3. Power on the DIRECTV Receiver.
4. Move the slide switch to DIRECTV icon.
5. Press and hold in the MUTE and SELECT keys until the
green light under the DIRECTV icon flashes twice and
then release both keys.
6. Using the number keys enter the 5-digit code. If performed
correctly the green light under the DIRECTV icon
will flash twice.

7. Aim the remote at your DIRECTV Receiver and press
that the power key once. The DIRECTV Receiver should
turn off. If it does not turn off, repeat steps 3 and 4, trying
each code for your brand until you find the correct

Once you have programmed the DIRECTV remote control for

I had the same problem programming my directv remote to recognize the ssc719c. What finally worked was programming AV1 (not 'TV') with the sylvania DVD code 20821. This allowed me to turn the tv on and off and change tv channels, but wouldn't allow me to mute or change the volume. To fix this, (at least in my case) you have to program your remote to recognize the volume and mute buttons in the AV1 slide setting. I assume other (non directv) remotes similarly disable the volume and mute buttons when the remote is not in satellite or tv mode. Anyway, here are the instructions that activated the volume & mute buttons on my remote: "Depending on how you set up your remote, the VOL and MUTE may control the volume only on your TV, regardless of the position of the MODE switch. This remote can be set up so that the VOL and MUTE keys work only with the component selected by the MODE switch. To enable this feature, perform the following steps: 1. Press and hold the MUTE and SELECT keys until the green light under the DIRECTV position flashes twice, then release both keys. 2. Using the number keys, enter 9-9-3. (The green light will flash twice after the 3.) 3. Press and release the VOL+ key. (The green light flashes 4 times.) Now the VOL and MUTE keys will work only for the component selected by the MODE switch position."
To sum up: if you find a code for your remote that will turn your tv on and off, but doesn't seem to do much of anything else, it's probably the right code; your remote is probably set up not to recognize volume or mute inputs in AV1 or AV2. You change that using a remote-specific code that's probably found somewhere on the remote maker's website.
Go through the process of setting up the remote again instead of trying the volume first use the power off button. In my experience, Sony receivers can be picky and power cycling "will" insure the code set, then try the volume.
